Mattawang Golf Club has changed very little since it first opened in 1960. The traditional layout has withstood the test of time as a challenging but playable layout. The course was designed to blend seamlessly into the natural setting while still testing your shot-making skills. You won’t find any man-made water hazards or artificial mounding on this golf course, instead you’ll be challenged by natural streams and ponds and mature evergreens. At first glance, the layout is seemingly wide open, but don’t let your guard down because the fairways are actually quite tight and many of them are strategically lined with trees. In keeping with the time it was built, the greens are smaller than those you would find on most modern golf courses and heavily protected by sand traps. Over the years, Mattawang Golf Club has built a reputation for having some of the well maintained putting surfaces in the area.

Fun Course, Slow(ish) pace of play

Good local course. Pretty well kept for as much use as it gets. The pace of play was pretty slow (almost 5 hour round) for not a crazy long course. Group in front of us took forever on each green, would like to see the pace of play accelerated a bit but overall great experience. Some tough holes, the last 2 are long fun par 4s.

Thank you for leaving your thoughts, glad to see the words great overall experience mixed in the comments.

You mention slow play. It was a holiday and we show all rounds completed in 3.5 hours to 4.5 fours throughout the day. Sorry you must have been in the 4 and one half grouping.

I always liked this course.

I always like Mattawang. I played this course every month in my corporate golf league. Now that I’m retired I come out and play the course with my wife. We both enjoy the course layout and it is in wonderful shape.

Late Spring Saturday round

My wife and I and our other golf couple played the course for the first time; we walked, they rode; we enjoyed the round; but for a few fairway bare spots, course was in nice shape; greens were nice; byob; no concession. We’d play it again

Good course

All the fairways are pretty close to one another so if you don’t hit it straight it’ll end up on the other fairway no doubt. Course is great though

Nice course

Very nice course. Pace of play was good. No hold ups anywhere. Great conditions all around. Haven’t seen bunkers in that good of shape in a while. Only complaint is that there was no cart girl or grill. After playing 18, I was looking for a cold beer and there was none on the premise.

Glad to see you enjoyed conditions and the pace of play. We do not have a liquor license, and because of that the cart girl does not get much business.
